It’s ALIVE!!!

Monday, September 25th, 2006

Joy of all joys, happiness beyond all belief–no, the kitties haven’t taught themselves to use the toilet–my lost blog entries have been recovered!!! I’ve been searching the past couple days, looking for cached versions of the missing pages, but to no avail. I knew it was hopeless, but I just kept checking, thinking maybe, just maybe, I’d get lucky. Then tonight my hopefulness was rewarded! Finally! I know that in the grand scheme of life losing a couple paragraphs’ worth of personal account of rather uneventful moments in my life is nothing, but it really did bother me. Not only because these entries take quite a lot of time to put together (believe it or not), but because I know that without having something written down it’s as good as forgotten in the years to come. And forgetting moments lived is like the proverbial tree falling in the forest. It’s all well and good if you’ve got someone there to witness your life so you can say a year from now, “Remember that time when I put a gummy bear on the window and it stuck and it looked like it was an evil gummy bear flying in the air all on its own in that picture I took?”, but in times like these when my only roommates are two cats and a gecko, a girl has to make do with what she has so that when I’m seventy I’ll be able to refer back to this and tell my grandchildren all about my exciting life of cat toilet behavior and crappy reality TV.

The fact is I’ve managed to keep myself incredibly busy (for the most part) combing through job listings online, sending out resumes, attending a job fair, and undergoing interviews. As of yet there is still no job. There are possibilities, but no job. I blame this blog for that!

Oh my dear, dear blog. I have grown quite attached to you over the past year! You’ve been there through all my travels, for the good times and the bad, from near-death experiences to lewd acts and everything in between. And now, when I need you most in this difficult time of life, you have disappointed me! Don’t worry, I can’t stay mad at you for long.

Pip pip, and all that

Monday, September 12th, 2005
While the longest schlep has come to an end, a new era of mini-schleps has begun. The location has changed, but the schlepping remains the same. I'm once again back in the UK. This time I'm not studying, I'm not visiting, ... [Continue reading this entry]
